Details about this class

Hi, and welcome to PSY 201! We'll be exploring a lot of interesting material-- including some of my absolute favorite areas of psychology-- so I hope you'll join us this quarter :)

Some quick notes you might be wondering about...

Course Modality

Our class is what's called an "online-remote hybrid" course, which means that instead of meeting twice a week, we meet just once a week on Zoom (every Tuesday). This doesn't mean we only cover half the material though! Instead, our remote meetings will be blended with additional, self-directed online work in place of a second weekly meeting.


Participating in our weekly Zoom sessions is an important (and I hope enjoyable!) part of class, so attendance/participation does earn you points toward your final grade-- but I'm looking more to reward you for engaging than to penalize you if an emergency comes up! Everyone gets a couple "free" (no questions asked/no points deducted) absences, and you can make up attendance points with an alternate assignment if needed.

I'm so excited to know you and explore this field together!

** Textbook is free, you do not need to purchase anything


There is no additional technology required for this class.
